You rock girl. Right into my favorites. One of the most spectacular, mind blowing, horse scenes I have ever seen. This is incredible. The composition, the way that dust is kicking up around them, the colors, the amazing details of the horses and their bodies reaction to going all out. Take a bow dear friend. Awesome.
